Entire SA allocation of Volvo XC40 P6s sold within 24 hours

It is believed that the overwhelming customer response to the XC40 P6 Recharge is in large part thanks to its favourable price point.

The order books for the XC40 P6 Recharge officially opened early on Tuesday July 26, and every one of the 25 units was snapped up by the following morning. The highly anticipated single-motor version of the electric XC40 was available exclusively online through Volvo’s website from a starting price of R1 075 000.

“We were determined to bring in the XC40 P6 Recharge at an attractive price, positioning it as the most affordable all-electric luxury vehicle currently on the market. This has clearly resonated with a number of South Africans, looking to switch to battery-powered vehicles, leading to the P6 selling out even quicker than our twin-motor XC40 P8 Recharge AWD,” said Greg Maruszewski, the managing director of Volvo Cars South Africa.

The quick-thinking buyers who recognised the XC40 P6 Recharge’s compelling value proposition and scooped up the initial units will enjoy strong peak outputs (170kW and 330Nm), a competitive single-charge range (up to 423km*), a generous array of standard equipment and Volvo’s signature suite of world-class safety features. Deliveries will take place later this year.

Range is according to WLTP driving cycles and real-world range may vary. Figures are based on the preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.
